Club Statement (from www.wrexhamafc.co.uk)
Wrexham FC today announces the departure of First Team Manager Kevin Wilkin from the football club.
Everyone at the club would like to thank Kevin for his endeavours during his time at the Wrexham FC, in particular reaching both the FA Trophy Final and the
third round of the FA Cup this season and his focus on developing links with the community.
This was an incredibly difficult decision but despite our cup successes our main priority is promotion back to the football league and we have not made the progress expected towards that aim. We have therefore made the difficult decision that a change is needed.
Carl Darlington and Gary Mills will prepare the team for the forthcoming home fixtures supported by Michael Oakes and we will make further announcements in due course.
Building upon the successful introduction of comedy to FOCUS Wales festival in 2014, FOCUS Wales 2015 will see the likes of HENNING WEHN, RAY PEACOCK, SEYMOUR MACE, plus many more entertain audiences at Grove Park Theatre, and William Aston Hall at Glyndwr University.
FOCUS Wales are working alongside Glyndwr University to welcome the German comedy Ambassador, HENNING WEHN to Wrexham on Thursday 23rd April, at 7.30pm.
As Henning’s assimilation into British society is not yet complete, he hasn’t lost his sense of Westphalian wonderment at the foibles of British society. Expect a crash course in personal accountability and have a right old laugh at the same time! Wunderbar!
The next two nights of comedy are sponsored by The Leader, and take place at Grove Park Theatre. Friday night sees British comedian and actor SEYMOUR MACE take to the stage, best known for playing Steve in the BBC sitcom Ideal. Seymour was City Life Comedian of the Year in 2003 and Best Breakthrough Act at the North West Comedy Awards in 2004.
The Big Health Day, an all-day event in the Wrexham Memorial Hall, will take place on Wednesday 25th March 2015. It has been organised by AVOW to give you the chance to see what’s on offer in the Wrexham area to support your recovery or help you to live more independently.
The event will give you information and provide you with practical advice to live a healthier lifestyle without sounding like a nagging parent! You will also have the chance to try out some activities including tasting some delicious food and have your say on health & social care services in the County. This is a public event, entry is completely free, and refreshments will be available throughout the day.
Organisers are putting the final touches to the first ever Wrexham literary festival.
Among the star attractions at the Carnival of Words are rugby legend Gareth Thomas and former Home Secretary and best-selling author Alan Johnson – not to mention a murder mystery and a session on TV sci fi show Dr Who.
The event is being supported by the town’s Eagles Meadow shopping centre where the festival will be having a pop up shop to promote the week-long festival which is on from April 18.to April 28.
The temporary shop will open on April 10 during the run-up to the festival and will host a series of free events.
Shoppers will be able to add their own lines to a “street poem” and then watch it expertly performed back at the shop.
Visitors will also be able to hear their own favourite piece of verse read out by a guest poet or to listen to a top author spinning what he promises will be tales stranger than fiction.
The successful event played host to representatives from Welsh Government, Arts & Business Cymru, BBC Wales, as well as various festival sponsors, and local brewers Big Hand Brewing.
Drinks were provided by Penderyn Whisky, and Majestic Wine, with delicious food provided by local foodies Feed Your Guests.
The launch event began the countdown to FOCUS Wales 2015, with now only 43 days to go!
